grateful heart: cardiology update.


via

I was reminded of this today.
You see we paid a visit to Preston's cardiologist this morning (I adore her!) and she gave Preston two thumbs up.

His heart function still looks great!  His valves (the mitral and aortic) still look sloppy, but they work and work well.  That's what counts at this point.

His heart still looks very large on the chest xray, but she's optimistic that he will "grow into his heart." She was on the verge of stopping his one medication he takes for his heart function, but she erred on the side of caution, given the size of his heart, and decided to keep him on it and increase the dose.

We've been released from clinic for a year, and a big hallelujah to that since we were there for six hours today.

God is good, and we can never praise Him enough for His blessings.
